A funner way to play the speed dating game, this unique singles mixer at The Jam Tree gives you the chance to mingle with up to 20 people across a series of 4-minute dates.

Saturday at the Candlemaker always gets a little bonkers as resident bingo-caller and hot beverage aficionado Tina Turner Tea Lady pitches up to bring you one of the best brunch events in Battersea.

Head to the gorgeous Radio Alice Clapham where their fun pizza-making classes gives you the inside scoop on what makes their sourdough slices quite so good.

You'll be chowing down on your own creations.
